WASHINGTON — As the last day of the Democratic National Convention opens, the Democratic Party’s nominee for President, Joe Biden, will take the stage and accept the party’s nomination. But contrary to tonight’s convention theme of “America’s Promise,” a Biden/Harris ticket will fail in making America’s Promise possible for the most vulnerable among us: the unborn child.
“A Biden/Harris ticket will be the most pro-abortion ticket in history,” said Carol Tobias, president of the National Right to Life Committee. “Both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris support radical abortion policies. A Biden/Harris administration would roll back protective legislation such as the Hyde Amendment and force taxpayers to pay for abortion on demand.”
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris support the Democratic platform of unlimited abortion even through birth.
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have both been endorsed by NARAL Pro-Choice America. In their release endorsing Joe Biden, NARAL pointed out that a Biden/Harris presidency would “expand access” to abortion.
In addition, NARAL also noted the real promises that a Biden/Harris administration would fulfill by promising to “only appoint judges” that would uphold Roe v. Wade and support the repeal of the Hyde Amendment. They also praised the Biden/Harris ticket for promising to reverse the Mexico City Policy which prevents federal tax dollars from being used by organizations that perform or promote abortions overseas.
But the accolades from pro-abortion groups do not stop with NARAL. Planned Parenthood Action Fund also expressed their confidence in the pro-abortion ticket of Biden/Harris. Planned Parenthood congratulated Senator Harris on her nomination and said that with her nomination, “Joe Biden has made it clear that he is deeply committed” to “advancing and expanding” abortion on demand.
Further, Planned Parenthood’s praise of Kamala Harris as a Vice Presidential candidate does not stop with a simple endorsement. They praised her full commitment to expanding abortion on demand and her plan for making it nearly impossible for pro-life legislation to pass by duly elected representatives in state legislatures. Planned Parenthood praised her “vision" saying,
In June 2019, Harris participated in the Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s presidential event, “We Decide: 2020 Election Membership Forum” where she offered her vision for greater abortion access…. As a presidential candidate, she introduced a plan to require states and localities with a history of violating Roe v. Wade to obtain approval from her Department of Justice before any abortion law or practice could take effect.
“It’s settled. A Biden/Harris administration with the help of Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and other pro-abortion leaders in Congress would roll out the red carpet for pro-abortion groups,” said Tobias. “A Biden/Harris administration would cripple efforts to pass any pro-life protective legislation on the state or federal level.”
Founded in 1968, the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the federation of 50 state right-to-life affiliates and more than 3,000 local chapters, is the nation’s oldest and largest grassroots pro-life organization. Recognized as the flagship of the pro-life movement, NRLC works through legislation and education to protect innocent human life from abortion, infanticide, assisted suicide and euthanasia.
